I had to take my HIDs out yesterday.. I think one of my ballasts might be fried. It would only come on for a second, flicker, then go out again. They do have a two year warranty though, so I just have to send them back when I go back to St. John'* in January.

I don't think I've ever hated halogen lights so much in my life lol. I bought some Sylvania Cool Blue bulbs, but I think I'm going to modify my eurolite hig beam bulbs to fit in the low beam sockets.. they have a whiter output.

I became extremely well versed in the components of the power mirror motor on my car. I bought a different one off of Gunner, but ended up fixing my old one instead....those things are picky about how they are played with.

Pull the top end of the engine on the turbo build I'm working on. To cold to do much more. 17* is a bit to cold to work long.
